“I went to Durham university and did a BSc in Psychology, worked for a stint in marketing, and then came to Stagetext. After four and a half years managing the digital subtitle programme, I’ve moved to the role of Head of Systems and Services.

As a deaf person from birth, and a fan of theatre for almost as long, Stagetext has been a critical part of my life for many years, long before I worked here. I’ve always had a passion for theatre and the arts, and was involved in productions both in and out of school, at the Chickenshed theatre, and Arcola Queer Collective.

It’s thanks to Stagetext that I’ve been able to enjoy the theatre for many years, and it’s incredible to be able to work within the charity, pushing for more accessible art every day.”
